I came a cross a newspaper article from 1859, printed in Fraktur, in which a man had died and the probate court had ordered two buildings to be sold with the consent of his relatives. One was called "Ein Gut im Bezirk Filet ..." Here, Filet is a village in the Raron district of Kanton Wallis, Schweiz. The other is called "Ein Gütchen, auf der Alpe Goppisberg ..."
I would guess that a Gütchen is a little Gut, but I have been Googling for a while now and I am having trouble finding these terms defined. I see that "Landgut" and just "Gut" were old terms for real property, as opposed to personal property. But with the artile "Ein", I'm guessing these terms are more specific.
Can anyone tell me if these terms they really just generic, like "building" and "little building", or is the more connotation involved?
